Emmie's First Day of 3K

Emmie has been looking forward to 3K and being in Ms. Dawn and Ms. Hila's class since Walt's first day in their class 2 years ago.  She has been so excited all summer and has talked about all of the fun things she was going to do in there for months.  Today was the much anticipated first day, and it seems to have met all of her expectations!  Emmie was excited to tell me that she made a new friend, played with some old friends, dressed up as Sleeping Beauty, played play doh, babies, and beauty shop, sang songs, and painted.  She LOVED it and can't wait to go again on Friday. 

This is how excited she really was.  I couldn't get her to really smile like this for any of the other pictures.  I think she wanted me to stop taking them so she could hurry and get there to play!

Walt's First Day of Kindergarten

Yesterday was Walt's first day of Kindergarten at the elementary school.  He was so excited to go.  By 6:30am he was dressed and ready with his bed made.  It's so hard to believe that he is old enough to go to kindergarten.  But, it is hard to be sad when this little boy is so excited and so ready for all the new adventures, friends, and lessons ahead.  Really I'm so excited for him.  He already had two friends in his class and knew a couple others through sports.  Not that I'm worried at all about Walt making new friends.  He has never met a stranger and loves collecting and holding onto all friends that he meets.  This is one of my favorite things about Walt.  Anyways, when I picked him up from school the first thing he said was that it was a long day.  And it was, 7:50-2:50!  But, he made it, and didn't even fall asleep during rest time or fall apart when we got home.  YAY!  He said his favorite thing was eating in the cafe.  His class also went to the library and he loved picking out a book and bringing it home.  He says they played on the playground, played in the class room, did art, and learned some stuff too, although he wouldn't tell me what they learned.  He must have loved it, again this morning he came down fully dressed with his bed made at 6:30 ready to go.  Today we started our routine of Daddy taking Walt to school and Emmie and I will pick him up.  Walt loves that the boys go to work together everyday while the girls stay home and play.  :)  It was like watching Boyd and his mini-me leave this morning.  SO CUTE!

It's a Boy!

I know it has been so long since I posted, but among the many things we have had going on since Christmas, the most exciting thing is our new addition.  Walt and Emmie are getting a baby brother on November 29 and we are all so excited!  Walt was jumping for joy to find out yesterday that he gets a brother.  I feel like everyone has something so special about them now.  Walt being the oldest, this baby being the youngest and Emmie being the only girl.  Anyways, everything looked healthy and perfect on our ultrasound yesterday and we are so greatful.  I also got my first glimps of a baby in 3D, so exciting!  Here are a few of the pictures.
